Making Burlap Strips?

I am making a ghillie and am currently putting all of my jute onto my netting. I also want to add burlap strips into the mix because it will cover up more space and look a little more natural in leafy environments, even with veggies.

I have been destringing my burlap into jute, but how do you make burlap strips? Do you use some sort of spray glue so the strips don't fall apart and dye it like that?

It wont come undone. We tie them on.. make it tight.. pull really I dont understand whats so hard to get bro..
Yeah I know what a STRIP of burlap is.. get the sheet,cut out STRIPS.. hense the STRIPS of burlap.. cut out the STRIPS of burlap and tie them onto your netting... Still...
Sometimes I get to work with burlap that is super tight and does not come undone easy, tough to destring, almost a pain in the ass. That stuff has held together for over a year. Meanwhile, the "tanner" burlap I have worked with is super easy to destring. It all depends what you get at the store, as it varies. Go back and look for darkish tan almost a grey color.
dangit,lol.. I didnt even think about that! I'm sorry man. I have only had the luck of getting the stupid hard kind thats a pain in the neck to fray. I liked the lighter color tan cause that was about the color I was going for,I guess I learned something new today. My next trip to Joann Fabrics will be to get the other kind mentioned, or wait till I have enough to buy from Fuzzy! I really wanna make a sweet crawl suit but cant affors it right now. My birthhday is in a few days and the warden wanted to buy me Sniper Elite for the ps3 but I dont own one,she does and in a way I would almost enjoy a sexy ole ghillie more.. but its a real toss up,lol.. Again bro, I am sorry I may have seemed rude and I didnt intend it. :shrug:
